I installed AMD 64 8.04. I had expected it would partition my drive, as all other versions did. It didn't. Therefore I lost Windows XP. After running AMD 64 version I'm disappointed. I can't get my printer (Canon pixma ip1800) to work because there are no 3rd party drivers for it for AMD 64. Also, I tried to install Opera browser; same results - it only works on i386.
At this point I want to go back and reload Windows XP and install i386 8.04 from there. If I install it under Windows it will dual boot. I like 8.04, just not some of the issues with AMD 64 version
What I'm not sure about is how do I get my SATA hard drive back to where I can reinstall Windows?
I'm a real novice so I need detailed step by step instructions.
